نقاشی اروتیک عهد مغولان هند به زبان فارسی
This illustration is an artistic depiction of a sex position. Persian was the official language of the Mughal court; as a result, the script on this painting was written in Persian. The erotic theme of this painting is perhaps influenced by Kama Sutra (Sanskrit: कामसूत्र ) which is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vātsyāyana, who was a philosopher in the Vedic tradition who is believed to have lived during the time of the Gupta Empire in India.

Generally, a portion of the work in Kama Sutra, consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. Originally, the book did not have illustrative images, but artists later on added images to complement its descriptions of different sex positions.
